    This kid a 3rd round pick and a gamble at that.

    Miami needs to draft the BPA.

    Avoid picking WR in the 1st round.

    CB, LB, beastly DE. Avoid another Yatil Green!

    Well I have been a fan of trading down for Hunter since our last game of the season. Give me the most pro ready of the bunch, the last thing this team needs is another project, we need to leave it be with Tannehill. We can trade down for Hunter, than trade two of our three (if we traded down for Hunter we'd get an additional 3rd 2nd rounder) and than get Eiffert as well. That would be a fantastic 1st round for this team IMO and a HUGE step in the right direction.

I am not stating that if you want us to hit on the kid you haven't done your homework, but I do not understand his hype when he isn't even the best receiver on his own team.
    I find it funny that you're talking down to people without actually taking a second to think about Patterson and Hunter's season. It took me about 15 seconds to pull up Patterson's stats. You'll note that Patterson had a number of touches in the run game before we get started.

    If you add all those up, they equal 308 yards. Patterson had 778 yard receiving. Together those make 1086 yards of total offensive production (we'll exclude return yardage) and 71 touches on offense between the two.

    Justin Hunter had 73 receptions and 1083 yards receiving.

    I'm no math genius, but I think those are almost exactly the same. Patterson had the lowest target rate of all tier 1 receivers. If he had a similar quarterback as the other wide receivers he would have had added 390 yards to his season production (the homework I've done). Maybe you should double check your work on your "homework" because clearly you didn't think your answers all the way through. I don't have a problem with you not liking Patterson, I have a problem with you being condescending while doing it.

    You mean you would not take a WR at 12, but would take a TE. What is the logic behind that?

    Honestly, I'd take Cordarelle Patterson at #12 and not look back. Love what I see from him and he could learn the offense and work in while he returns kicks. He doesn't have to catch 80 balls as a rookie. Definitely is elite with the ball in his hands. I think Jeff Ireland would prefer a more polished guy like Keenan Allen.

    I love this kid as well.I would love to see us draft him and sign Jennings. One thing this team lacks is very good veterans to teach the younger pups how to play the game in the NFL. Kruger just talked about this exact thing when it comes to Ray Lewis, said Ray demands everyone prepare like him for each game. Holds everyone accountable. This also why teams like the Steelers continueto have grat linebackers, the draft guys a year or two before they are needed and they get taught by the guys in frot of them. Same with the packers and receivers, that started way back and has continued right up until now and will continue next year. I bet the Packers draft another receiver in the top 4 rounds. Jennings could come in and help polish a guy like Patterson and then hopefully a guy liek Steadman Bailey in late 2nd early third as well.
    Let's go Miami!!!!

    Jason Pierre-Paul was very much a "project" at defensive end. I'm sure the Giants are glad they took him in the mid-1st.

    I think there are no doubt safer picks....I would not have a problem with Chance Warmack for one.
    Jay Fiedler can take his'n and lose to your'n.....or take your'n and lose to his'n.

    I like Patterson but no way at 12. He is more a great special teamer, end around guy when he makes his plays based on what I have seen. He scored 5 TD's. I know that is a WR rich team but I think there is hype buildup on this guy and it would be safer for him to fall to 44. There are always guys who are ranked high and dont make it for whatever reason. Martin is case and point He was ranked high right up till the draft.

    I think Woods would be a better prospect in our system to make a splash but the ulitmate to me is Bailey. He does slants, screens, goes deep, catches TD's. I am looking for someone who fits what we do more than buy into a guy because he looks great in the open field.
